Artisan Collection

For our artisan goods, we use english bridle or harness full grain, vegetable tanned leathers.
These two leather types are drum-dyed and hot stuffed to bring out the leather's natural grain.
The process for vegetable tanning hasn't changed much in the past 100 years and is much slower than chrome tanning, but the results are stunning.
Vegetable tanning takes about six weeks and uses natural ingredients such as tree bark.
Our leather comes from one of the oldest operating tanneries in the United States.


English Bridle Leather:
Labor-intensive and incredibly appealing, English Bridle is a traditional leather with a variety of uses.
Drum dyed and hot stuffed, English Bridle is smooth, flexible yet durable.
Beautiful crafted with a flawless, even surface.

What To Expect

Since we use full grain leathers, you can expect an initial stiff and tight fit.
Just like a pair of good boots, the leather will break-in, become softer, and gain a rich patina over time.
We keep it to a minimum, but some marks or scars may be present on the leather as we only use full grain leathers.
Due to the nature and variations in each hide of leather, the color may appear slightly different than the product photos.
